Tuesday's roundup: Anchor Bay girls win dual swim meet
In its last dual before this weekend’s county swim meet, the Anchor Bay girls swimming and diving team defeated Marine City on Tuesday, 118-56.
Junior Brooklynn Janis participated in three of Anchor Bay’s winning relays (200-meter medley, 200 freestyle and 400 freestyle) and won the 200 freestyle in 2 minutes, 3.49 seconds.
“As far as Brooklynn goes, we’re preparing her for states,” Anchor Bay coach Kevin Ott said. “That will be her focus going on through the season. She’s still trying to qualify for some more events. We’ll use the county meet to get some good races in and qualify for the 100 butterfly and 200 freestyle.”
The 200 medley, which consisted of Janis, Kelsie Thomas, Madeline Markwood and Jessica Brockley finished in 2:11.48. The 200 freestyle team of Janis, Brockley, Miranda Bergeron and Rylah Razzak touched the wall in 1:55.27. The last relay, the 400 freestyle with Janis, Razzak, Macy Gustavus and Paige McGuire finished in 4:18.07.
Razzak finished the 100m butterfly in 1:10.64, qualifying for the county meet.
Ott said he has high expectations for the freshman.
“It was her first time swimming the (butterfly) this year,” Ott said. “She’s been working on it. Having a freshman time of a 1:10, there’s a lot of potential with that. It’s not a bad time for a first swim for that event, either. I have high expectations for her in that event.”
For Anchor Bay (4-2, 2-1 MAC Blue) 13 swimmers qualified for the county meet. Six are freshmen.
“We have a pretty good freshman core group,” Ott said. “I think our preparation going into it (the county meet) is perfecting our turns and starts and refining the smaller parts of the race. That’s what our focus will be at parts of practice going into the county meet.”
The county meet starts Thursday with the diving preliminary round. The swimmers start Saturday.
Marine City is 2-1, 1-1.
